Laura Henderson buys an old London theater and opens it up as the Windmill, a performance hall which goes down in history for, among other things, its all-nude revues.
When Vivian Van Damm gives a patriotic wartime speech to the Windmill Theater's cast and crew, Mrs. Henderson says of him, "He thinks he's bloody Winston Churchill." In fact, Bob Hoskins did play Winston Churchill, in the TV mini-series World War II: When Lions Roared (1994).
Our intelligence tells me that Germany is going to bomb London.
Laura Henderson: *My* intelligence tells me that.
Vivian van Damm is portrayed as being in his mid-60s during the bombings. In reality he was only in his late 40s.
